- Education and Training
Arizona State University (ASU) is the largest public university by enrollment in the U.S. and has been ranked #1 for two consecutive years by U.S. News & World Report as the most innovative university in America (ahead of Stanford at #2 and MIT at #3).
For more than 7 years, ASU has been a driving force in the modernization of Vietnam’s higher education. Launched in 2010 in partnership with Intel and USAID, the successful Higher Engineering Education Alliance Program (HEEAP, heeap.org) is enhancing traditional theory-based engineering and technical vocational programs by advocating the addition of applied and hands-on instructional approaches to produce work-ready graduates who pass the applied and technical communication skills required to excel in multinational corporations. Expanding on the scope and scale of this work, the Building University-Industry Learning and Development through Innovation and Technology (BUILD-IT, builditvietnam.org) project was launched in late 2015. Based on the pillars of institutional policy, quality, curriculum, faculty innovation, and technology, this next phase leverages deep and diverse government-industry-academic partners that share a goal of tightly linking STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math) instruction in Vietnamese higher education institutions to the need and capabilities of industry partners to produce graduates who can lead inclusive, technology-based growth.
In addition, the ASU Representative Office also offers in-county support to interested students seeking admission to ASU and customized workforce development
